Chapter 12. Multimedia > Creating RealMedia Files

Creating RealMedia Files

RealMedia files are not downloaded all at once but instead are streamed bit by bit to your visitors so that they don't have to wait for a complete download before listening. Although you can download the official RealServer—or your ISP may already have it installed on your server—you can also stream RealMedia files to your visitors for free with a regular Web server.

There are three components to adding RealMedia sound to your pages: the sound itself, a text file called a metafile that references the sound on your server, and the HTML code that points to the metafile.
